Instructions for Blondie Brownies
Grease and line a 9x9-inch Baking Pan, roast walnuts, chop them roughly once cooled, and set aside.
Make the Blondie Batter
Combine melted butter and sugars in a bowl, mix well, then incorporate eggs and vanilla extract.
Mix Dry Ingredients
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt.
Combine Batter and Dry Ingredients
Add the dry ingredient mix to the batter, stirring until it forms a homogenous mixture.
Add Final Ingredients and Bake
Stir in white chocolate chips and roasted walnuts, pour the batter into the pan, and bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes.
Cool and Serve
After allowing the blondies to cool, cut them into squares and serve.
Hint: Be cautious not to overbake them. Overbaking could lead to dry and crumbly blondies instead of the desired fudgy texture. The blondies are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs but not wet batter. Keep in mind that they will continue to cook slightly as they cool in the pan.
If you need to adapt this recipe to fit a specific dietary requirement, do not worry! Here are a few substitution ideas:
- For a vegan version, use melted coconut oil or a plant-based butter substitute instead of butter. Replace the eggs with a suitable egg replacer or applesauce.
- If you have a nut allergy, omit the roasted walnuts or substitute them with your preferred nut-free alternative, such as toasted pumpkin seeds or dried fruit.
Remember to adjust the measurements and baking times accordingly based on the substitutions you make.
The beauty of Blondie Brownies lies in their versatility. Feel free to experiment and customize the recipe to suit your preferences or cultural cuisine. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Add a touch of warmth by incorporating spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or cardamom into the batter.
- Enhance the texture and flavor profile by mixing in shredded coconut or crushed pretzels.
- For a decadent twist, drizzle melted caramel or chocolate sauce over the cooled blondies.
- Experiment with different mix-ins such as dried cranberries, mini marshmallows, or chopped dark chocolate.
The variations are endless, so get creative and make these Blondie Brownies uniquely yours!

Once you've enjoyed your Blondie Brownies, you'll want to store any leftovers properly to maintain their freshness. Allow the brownies to cool completely, then transfer them to an airtight container or wrap them tightly with plastic wrap. They can be stored at room temperature for up to 3 days. If you want to extend their shelf life, refrigerate them for up to a week or freeze them for up to 2 months. Just make sure to thaw frozen brownies before enjoying them again.
To achieve the perfect texture and flavor, make sure not to overbake the Blondie Brownies. Keep a close eye on them during the last few minutes of baking and remove them from the oven when the edges are lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. The residual heat will continue to cook them slightly as they cool, resulting in soft and chewy blondies.
